The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.


The Interior in Contemporary Art

The interior is conspicuously present in contemporary art, as this the traditional genre is being revitalized. Paintings of private life are coming into focus. Especially in an era when people are increasingly working, shopping, or socializing at home, the home is turning into an actual psychogram. This publication documents the rich variety of artistic approaches to the theme. Here, the interior can help us reflect on our everyday spheres or examine diverse aspects of culture. It can also serve as a mirror for the inhabitants’ internal psyche or as a medium for memory.
